I remember 'Mag' Bews from Orphir, at KGS in the sixties, and I wonder if these are her parents. Is she the contributor's mother?
Added by Marlene Mainland on 19 November 2009
Yes Marlene these are my parents on their wedding day on 25th November 1940. David Foubister Bews and Grace Elizabeth Mary Frisken Lennie, known as Mary, or Tottie to those who come from Sanday.These pictures were sent in by my son Ken who has followed his grandfather into the Army but in Royal Engineers.

Good to hear from you Mag. Your parents were a good looking couple, like so many from the North Isles!
